Raise Craze Grande Finale: THANK YOU
What an incredible 10 days!
A huge thank you to YOU, families, for making this a record-breaking year for Raise Craze at Holy Souls.

Drumroll, please...

This year, we performed 4,333 Acts of Kindness and raised over $78,000!

Our goal was to raise $40,000 and perform 1,500 Acts of Kindness. We should have known you would go above and beyond!

And it won't stop there, we're sure! Supporters have until Tuesday to donate, so we believe we will deliver over $80,000 for the STEM lab, classrooms, and playground this year. WOW!
Food drive for Arkansas Foodbank a Huge Success
Just like everything this Raise Craze, you blew our initial goals out of the water. Initially, we wanted to deliver 500 pounds of food to the Foodbank as a school. We filled TWO totes worth of food for the Foodbank, almost double our original goal.

Thank you for passing the blessings along to those in need!
Did You Know: Our Principals are the BEST
Your student may have come home yesterday abuzz about a visit from a dinosaur!

Yesterday, our principals rewarded the school for meeting our Raise Craze goals with an entertaining obstacle course run!

After, they visited each class to congratulate students for a great Raise Craze.

A replay of the obstacle course was shown at the end the closing ceremony this afternoon, if you want a good laugh!
We hope you know how much we appreciate everything you did to make Raise Craze such a success this year! This is YOUR success. Without you sending emails, encouraging your students, logging AOKs, donating funds and spreading the word, we would not have had such a great year. THANK YOU!

Special thanks also to the Committee of volunteers who worked tirelessly to deliver Raise Craze this year:
Chairs – Kelly Pace & Stephanie Byers
Incentives Chair - Lindsey Taggart
Acts of Kindness Chair – Ashley Saer
Worker Bee - Lorena McConnell

If you see these ladies, please give them a big thank you and congratulations!
